Does sharepoint allow the ability to view a Word document as read-only right from the site? (as html without opening in word or as an embedded Word file)
I would like to be able to click on a document (under shared documents) and view it without the need to download the document locally and open it to view in Word.
I need the ability to do this from systems that do not have and cannot have Word installed locally.
I've looked into the Page Viewer Web Parts add-in and it is not a solution.
It really surprised me that it seems not possible to do this out of the box. Maybe I am missing something?
